When I saw this book featured on Celebrate Picture Books for "Collect Rocks Day" last month, I knew I had to read it with my son. He is obsessed with collecting rocks. He tries to bring them home from everywhere! The great thing about this book is that it shows a little girl having to be responsible for the rocks she's collecting. She's backpacking through the woods with her aunt and uncle, and she has to carry her share of the equipment along with any rocks she wants to keep. Rhoda keeps loading them into her pack and it keeps getting heavier and heavier until she finally realizes she can't carry them any more. She has to make some decisions, and I love that she decides to build cairns with the rocks she cannot carry. We just saw some cairns on a hike recently with my brother and his family, so this book seemed really relevant. The aunt and uncle in the story really reminded me of my brother-in-law as well. He often takes my son tromping through the woods, so this story was very pertinent to our family. I think older children (ages 5-8) would enjoy this story and be able to absorb the lessons of being responsible for one's self, learning independence, and making decisions on their own. The illustrations are pretty awesome also. http://www.momsradius.com/2016/10/perfect-picture-book-friday-rhondas.html
